Does anyone know what these idiots did that made this thing so prone to downloading improperly? I've downloaded it three times and I keep getting the "invalid bitmap" error when it starts up. I've looked around the internet and it seems to be related to bad downloads (someone downloaded it 3 times from the same server before it worked).
What the hell did Futuremark do to this program that made it corrupt itself randomly? I've gotten maybe half a dozen bad downloads in the 10 years I've been using the internet, why is 3dmark 2006 the only one that developes one corrupt file inside
a packed AND ZIPPED
exe installer from multiple download sites??
I just wanted to run the damned benchmark.
I've already spent enough of my time sitting around waiting for multiple 600Mb files to download on a 3mbit connection.
How can a developer possibly make a program that doesn't download properly? That doesn't even make sense...
